2:32 am
lanes and want people we're talking about and things like that. a lot of our major intersections there's a movement which is good toward city planning allowing the opportunity to make right turns with no restrictions. pedestrian safety is a 2-way street it's pedestrians looking out for themselves as well. when i come to a stop sign just because you're a pedestrian doesn't mean you can walk wherever you feel like that. there's a chief who's doing some advocacy work like not tweeting
2:33 am
and things like that. you can't walk just because you're in the box. there's 17 hundred pedestrians that were hit last year
2:34 am
we schedule and advertise a meeting last month and invited mta. we have made public requests and local merchants have passed on the information. this information was insufficient this structure is
2:35 am
to begin in a few weeks. the information in tomorrow's meeting supervisor chu if you're listening here you're to support us. so members of mta board and all concerned sf residents are welcome to attend a meeting at 67:30 p.m. at the telegraph hall in mason and i looked to a productive meeting. thank you >> (calling names). >> good afternoon directors robert. local cab. i was a participant in the workshop regarding the
2:36 am
application by all those apps and i wanted to spend two minutes or one and a half trying to explain to you why wear talking about and why it is such an enormous threat to the taxi industry and in turn to you. the electronic apps - applications claim their something new in spite of the fact that many limousines companies and taxi company are going to use apps. and their claims is they're not transportation companies. they have no control over the drivers. many of the applications are claiming to be ride share and as such, they do not have
2:37 am
commercial insurance, there is no inspection of their cars there's no inspection of their driving records which would indicate the accident are anything else they have. in addition apparently their claiming they're not keeping any records so that their drivers are not even paying taxes which are the law by the irs making transactions of a thousand dollars or more remember this applies to taxi drivers or anybody. i could give you some more if you are interested >> thank you. next speaker, please and a (calling names).
2:38 am
>> herbert senior citizen at risk. i noticed the last meeting the conduct of the participants were incriminated upon. the question i would like to propose if a bicyclists had their my case lanes removed on the street there would be such outrage you would have to call in the tax squad. the thing about this the parking spaces are being defended by those people and its endsable. the fact is people only shop once a week in contrast to
2:39 am
people they could be making a thousand dollars in a purpose and those parking spaces are always in demand and so to remove them is really very destructive. i feel the bicyclists feeling is today hope street tomorrow the world. it will not hamper bicycling at all also in respect to the accident bicyclists have been struck how many of them went against the red light. we have to statistics about that. and one thing about the bike lanes being so close to the curb you can be struck by a bicyclist
2:40 am
it's face direct serve service. those are my comments i can understand it out rage of the folks but the bicyclists can be equally as anti raged >> (calling names). >> commissioners and audience at large thank you for let me eliciting me speak. i have two issues before me were one is that we talked about apps and app companies there's companies opening up on a monthly basis par there's a taxi cab company by law i don't know
2:41 am
what the real rules are you haven't looked into that. if you see a claim you control the taxi business you look at this company their telling us they're using limousines and taxis and other vehicles for this business. every year you've raised our fees and i believe you want to suck 25 million a year out of the taxi business. we don't have a dental plan or pension or anything. i don't know when you're going to start implementing it but we need a pension and a medical plan and a minimum wage to at
2:42 am
least match what muni drivers are making. maybe taxi drivers don't deserve is a get paid a better wage. we're part of the city and county of san francisco we should have the same wage as the minnesota drivers. thank you. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon berry. i first want to say that the t m y vehicles are going to be a
2:43 am
dinosaur. so i think you'd better look at the fuel tanks because it's tough to fill up. i went to a night club which has a new sound system i was about ready to go home and some guy in a site approached me and said where are you going. i don't appreciate it getting solicited and there were a lot of black town street it was hard to get through that. as speaking many had a private citizen nike think it behoves
2:44 am
you to get the inspectaculars out that. you're not enforcing this and the cabdrivers were having to line up behind them. i wanted to say that it doesn't look good that or i would ask you to support chris when she goes before those people. their bought and sold. you see they shut her off and i want you to pass a resolution to pass what she has to go through >> (calling names). >> good afternoon directors.
2:45 am
march 19th meeting there were 3 hundred people here. told the people they couldn't take on electronic equipment. i would like to inform all the directors that 3 hundred people came here to say we don't want electronic radios. after this we'll think sending i a letter inviting you to court. as apps from hoover there will be more apps coming it's a net of the time. people wants not the way the taxis is doing and mta is about
2:46 am
a year away and not suitable to this attrition. i'm looking at the people who receive the letters but they don't come to you and bye it. a number of rules of is expected to go further down with regard to buying madalinas. and let the director go. this was created by her. she is the biggest failure at such a high amount your paying. please liter go.
2:47 am
thank you >> next speaker please and (calling names). >> good afternoon. i'm bill i'm a taxi driver for twre or 24 years. i'd like to address this doctor i don't know his last name but i spoke to him last week and he's never flilgd a taxi cab. now how can a man write up a report and come up with all this and never ride in a taxi cab. we paid him $200,000 to do this report. i drive downtown for the first couple of you hours it's true i'm empty for half an hour.
2:48 am
they scream not enough cabs because they won't wait two or three minutes for a taxi. you know, adding those short term madalinas was tried before and it didn't work. you gave those guys a top number on their whatever it's called the card we got the taxi cab card and what happened - i'm talking. anyway, the number on the card we have and now they have got full-time taxis because the cab companies won't put out the shiners costs so they've become full-time taxis.
2:49 am
and so far as the taxis i'm high on the madalinas list and i'm getting one and i'm grateful to the board for bringing the price down. i'm very, very happy to be paying less money and thank you. >> (calling names). >> san francisco taxi driver. two public safety things i want to get into and one thing out of left field. the public safety is first caltrans should be on the other side of the street 90 of the riding fairs are on the other side of the street.
2:50 am
you have giant street you should go down there it's 0 total chaos. so if we move the cab signs on the other side of the street and stop the cabs from poovp from the other side of the street. and all you drivers inside to go to this website car c ar s ta c h should go for if you're a list driver or whatever you can buy a pink mustache manufactureer. i'm going to buy one today, i'm going to write like scabs or go
2:51 am
away and on my cab just bear in mind that maybe there is a time for the mta irrespective to step in and do what the airport did this is a public safety. and lastly hoover got this money the $70 million i think that's probably more than that. and the c p u has to hear this testimony and many of that money is put in there and - >> next speaker please and. >> thank the author of the - i
2:52 am
want to thank the security guard who runs off the limousine and they're very effective. one of my colleagues and his passenger managed to steal a pink minus tush and he got in trouble with the company. but as ben pointed out two people are just flagging those cars and hoping in so anybody can get one of those pink mustaches a murderer or. there was one car paint as a gray primer. the cars are getting older and older. you think it's little kids but i
2:53 am
take it young women who are hoping in those cars. and sidecars and lifts the attorneys say there was nothing by spin and side talk and they haven't protruded any documents. so if somebody is claiming i'm lying they need to come forward with their documents. and this lady came to the meeting with any questions and she left with so many more questions. and ride sharing you thought you were going to certain locations but really who goes to work at 2:00 a.m. in the modernizing in
2:54 am
hookers >> (calling names). >> if you could have the overhead i want to show you may have seen that but this is the last issue of the united tax news letter with the picture of the mayor on the cover. i think he needs to be called out on this. because the mayor of this city as turned his back on - the city's own taxi industry and this regulatory agency by endorsing the operations of companies that are operating in the city unlawfully, unregulated, unlicensed. and for the mayor to do that i
2:55 am
mean it seems disgrace full to me. those companies are providing uncontrolled competition. their numbers are growing day by day and the direction that is solution is taking of putting out more taxis to meet more of their vehicles to take back taxi share from us. i don't think that's going to work. there's a very influential article that goes back a few decades called the tragedy of the common sense where, you know, the farmers use a common area to grace their cattle and, you know, farmers this farmer puts another cow an and another farmer puts a cow on it and pretty soon that's their
2:56 am
individual benefit to do it but the cows are staffing. we in this situation are the cows senator something has to be done >> (calling names). >> at the april 6th accounting vote of this task force the vote was to find a violation of the
2:57 am
speaking times 5 to 4, however, one member of the task force does not show so it failed for the affirm active vote of the members of the sunshine task force. i'm moving for reconsideration and we'll keep you posted. the second raison i rise to he'd i is to get a formal answer on behavior of good government why didn't you go to get the report inside the agency. you had to spend how much money did you spend on the doctors
2:58 am
report? and a thank you. >> (calling one more name). >> i'm 25 years of driving a cab. doesn't mean anything. i brought to our attention the charging of 5 percent even though our rule says they can only charge 3 percent. this is the law of the land of the united states of america you can't charge minimum in dollars and i can go to the credit and you can fill that out for yourself. i suggest to the drivers to put a sign of credit card accepted
2:59 am
which dollar minimum and you'll be all right. and the other things i want to talk about we talk about in the town meeting if you're going to allow the cab companies to so-called dispatch to the center app the problem is still going to be there. what you need to do is when people called red or yellow or other other companies they can see the four block radius you can see them. you can see in if the yellow cabs are available for them fine they can get the cab right now right away. then they can make their
3:00 am
choices. and the second thing or the third thing there is no u turn for the taxi. there's a difficult situation over there on sutter street >> moniker to address that? >> i'd like to a take into account the credit cards charging 5 percent. also the california trains thing is right i've been down there are i don't know what kind of authority you'd have but the members can take a look at 0 those things. okay. the director is not going to be giving a report >> last item on the
